Busy Ant Maths Problem Solving and Reasoning Pupil Book Year 1 — Pack of 6
Pupils can quickly get to grips with KS1 problem solving and reasoning by completing activities categorised by topic and question type.
Problem solving and reasoning have been key focuses within primary maths since the introduction of the 2014 curriculum, and the focus on 'teaching for mastery’. Problem solving and reasoning helps pupils grasp diverse mathematical concepts and understand the application of the subject and enhances strategic thinking. Busy Ant Pupil Book 1 consists of three different types of mathematical problem solving challenges:
- Solving mathematical problems - This involves pupils solving problems 'within’ mathematics itself, recognising patterns and relationships, making conjectures and generalisations, and explaining and justifying conclusions.
- Reasoning mathematically - This involves pupils using logical thinking to solve problems, focusing on making conjectures and generalisations, and explaining and justifying conclusions using appropriate language
- Using & applying mathematics in real-world contexts - This involves pupils engaging in challenges that require them to use and apply their mathematical knowledge and skills in open-ended, real-world contexts.
The books are designed to be completed and are provided as a pack of 6. Answers are available on the Collins website. A useful tool for teachers as evidence and to assess children’s approach to problem solving and reasoning.
